South End

Orinoco’s original location is situated on an historic Shawmut Avenue corner, on the cozy ground floor of a brownstone that dates back to 1912. Featuring a colorful interior that was carefully restored by hand, we’ve been part of this close-knit neighborhood since 2006. This is our smallest restaurant, with only 30 seats, plus an additional 16 at our sidewalk cafe during spring, summer and early fall.  The restaurant is situated within similar walking distance from either the Massachusetts Avenue T-stop or the Back Bay Station on the Orange Line. Street parking can be found on Shawmut Avenue and/or on parallel Tremont and Washington Streets.
